Namibia safari experiences promise an enriching adventure.
When planning a Namibia safari, the images you might discover can appear downright otherworldly. For example, you can summit incredibly tall sand dunes in warm hues of red, orange, and yellow. Gaze across sprawling cracked white earth, interrupted only occasionally by petrified trees. Peer through thin scattered bush vegetation to search out the faintest hint of wildlife. And notice virtually zero trace of human influence in many regions. This panorama of Namibia presents a vast wilderness that is still largely undiscovered by travelers to southern Africa.
Access to Namibia:
Namibia is easy to reach from South Africa, and every enthusiastic safari-goer simply must experience a Namibia safari themselves. You will discover a place that is harsh and unforgiving, but no survival skills are necessary when traveling with Ker & Downey. In other words, just bring a healthy sense of adventure and a passion to see one of the world’s last untouched wildernesses.
Wildlife in Namibia:
Within the many isolated natural regions, wildlife can thrive without the presence of human threats. Black rhinos, desert-adapted elephant, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, and plains game coexist with other mammals, like the bat-eared fox. Check out the documentary Vanishing Kings to learn about the challenges faced by the last desert-adapted lions of Namibia. Game drives are a rewarding challenge on a Namibia safari. Your guides and trackers here train for years to spot even the slightest clues of nearby wildlife.
Culture in Namibia:
As varied as the landscapes, the cultural history of Namibia is equally intriguing. Find German and British colonial towns juxtaposed with ancient cultures. This includes the Himba people who live in some of the most rugged country in the world. Learn about the ancestors of the San Bushmen who made the famous etchings into the granite at Brandberg and Twyfelfontein. Combine these cultural experiences with a luxury Namibia safari for a balanced journey.
In short, a Namibia safari with Ker & Downey is an enriching discovery of the beauty of Namibia. Namibia has ancient sand dunes, legendary shipwrecks on the Skeleton Coast, and the big game of the numerous national parks and protected reserves.
